Yass District Education Foundation Grant Recipient
Josh is from Murrambateman and is an apprentice plumber at the Canberra Institute of Technology. Josh is required to undertake a total of 5 years study and training and with the challenge of paying for fuel, tools and subject fees, Josh applied for a financial grant with the Yass District Education Foundation.
Josh said the biggest difficulty he faced living in a regional area was covering his travel expenses and he said his education grant has helped him do this and he is extremely grateful for all the help.
I just want to say thanks to the Yass District Education Foundation, they have helped a lot with covering my expenses and taken a lot of pressure away.
After Josh becomes a licensed plumber he plans on working with the company that trained him for a few years and then one day he hopes to start his own plumbing business in a regional area.
